Audubon Council of Washington 2022

September 30 - October 2, 2022 on the Olympic Peninsula IN-PERSON

We're Back!

Audubon Washington and the chapters of the Northwest II region are pleased to welcome back chapter leaders from across Washington State for an in-person weekend of community and conservation. We'll meet in the newly-renovated Dungeness River Nature Center in Sequim, a partnership between the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe and the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society. We'll cover shared conservation issues, education programs, upcoming legislative strategies, partnerships with Tribes, and a new migration mapping project from National Audubon. We can't wait to put our heads together to tackle some of the biggest conservation challenges in Washington!
